On many farms the unpro fitable dairy cow is not by any means the only boarder. Low-yielding acres arc often fain) to successful farming. Our farm .survey Words show that ini'iis of poorly drained, compact, sour poil&lt;&lt;; or noils low in humus greatly re duce not profits ami arc a frequent cause of minus labour-income. Home-1 times these records .show that as much as thirty per cent. of the entire farm acreage does' not prodiicu enough to J>ay 1 its way. Tile successful business man tries to weed out all unprofitable enterprises and to expand tlin.su that pay a profit Pnprofitablc acres cannot always be dis posed (if ns readily as boarder cows, bui usually they can be improved until they become profit-bearing.

USE OF SALT IN AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 19 May 1915
USE OF SALT IN AGRICULTURE. The uso of nalt for maiiurial purposes, in a common practico in many parts of the British Isles. Only a fow crops, however, derive benefit from its ap plication. The maiiurial value of eomr> mon salt is an indirect one. Whon ap plied to tho soil, the sodium liberates and sets free more available potash from the large stock of insoluble poi ash compounds generally contaiueil in coast soils. In this respect, Halt forms a very good adjunct to other manures for all those crops requiring large supplies of potash. Jts application to soils rich in some cases replace the use of pot ash manures. Tho use of common salt as a manure is associated with the man uring of mangels perhaps more than with any other crop. Its value in this respect was formerly generally ascribed tn the fact that the wild species of the now cultivated mangel was a mariuu plant, and thus accustomed to tho hitjiii of growing in a salty environment. As mangel is a potash-loving plant, the tru...

FEEDING YOUNG CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 19 May 1915
FEEDING YOUNG CALVES. The greatest mistake made with young1 calves, that is, calves from the time they are born until they are two or three months old, i3 overfeeding. If one feeds whole milk there is no danger. Nature has made whole milk so that the calf can take all of it that you can coax it to take with out injurious effects. But when you unbalance the ration by tak ing the fat out of the milk, and then try to make up by feedintra larger quantity of skim milk, serious results may follow. When calves begin to scour after they have been started on skim milk it is almost absolutely sure that you are overfeeding. Cut down the milk. It is bavely possible, of course, that yon nw feeding the milk cold. This ought not to be. The young calf ought to have the skim milk direct from the sepa rator, or if the milk goes to the creamery and comes back cold, then it should be warmed up. There is no better way to do thin than to h-'.v:; ;i little agricultural strain h .md turn the hose into th» ...
